Wining and Winter


The wind is howling today, only blowing 50 mph gusts!!
Makes me think of you know what....
Yuck!!


That means it's time to start thinking about
my winter survival kit.....


First:
 Some good reading material....
{I cleaned off my desk yesterday and found a subscription to Country Garden}
That will be fun to look at when the snow's flying!


For Heaven's Sake,
stock up on wine!


My candle drawer is pathetic....some old birthday cake candles and 
three votives won't last long!


Need lots of firewood...
I'll put that on Sall's list.




 That should get me through another long winter on the prairie.

What happened to the flour, sugar, and lye soap????
I know, my priorities are a little screwed up!
This is a little house on the prairie but
we're no Ma & Pa Ingalls



A glass of wine by the fire and I can survive anything!

Be warm, my friends!
Lisa

Lye soap, do you make your own? I only ask because I have been known, on occasion, to turn out a batch here and there, whenever my dear friends have spare pig lard leftover. Life is very much the same for us here, too, with wood piled up all over and my candle stash is low, too. With this weather, the power can go out at any minute, so I'd better be prepared--where did I put the chocolate?

Sounds like you'll be well prepared when the north wind blows !!!
